Out of the hands of babes

Jonathan Rockhoff, pastor at Messiah, Wichita, Kan., wrote in to share this news item: "Each month I recruit one of our younger children to hand out the Forward in Christ issues to people on their way out of church. This month I recruited our youngest member yet, three-year-old Blayke Banick."
